With season ticket memberships starting to arrive, LA Galaxy fans around the region have been on the lookout for the FedEx truck.

Enclosed in a slick commemorative box, the packages come with several goodies including a colorful lanyard, sticker sheet and letter from head boss Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

However one eagle-eyed Galaxy fan spotted something else entirely. If you’ve been around the stadium formerly known as the StubHub Center lately, there’s been plenty of construction in and around the venue.

In addition to buying the stadium naming rights, Dignity Health and the organization announced a series of improvements during the offseason listed below, including the proposal to erect a statue of David Beckham.

In addition to immortalizing a Galaxy legend, that would be one heck of an Instagram-worthy spot. Club officials have confirmed the statue will be unveiled before the season opener.

Improvements for 2019 include:

New sound system
Improved tailgating area
David Beckham statue!
Renovated public plaza
Newly updated Galaxy HQ
